SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 4 -- Keynote Systems, the global leader in on-demand mobile and Internet test and measurement solutions for continuously improving the online experience, today announced that it has made testing from the cloud easier than ever with new one-click functionality from KITE, Keynote Internet Testing Environment. KITE is Keynote’s free desktop product for testing and analyzing the performance of Web sites and applications across the Internet cloud. KITE makes it easy for all Web teams to optimize Web site performance just in time for the trying 2009 holiday season.
“We’ve done for cloud testing what Amazon did for online shopping,” said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote. “Now, with one-click functionality, anyone can determine the performance of a Web site from around the world.”
Users will also be able to use Keynote’s cloud storage to store the 20 most recently executed performance test scripts for reporting and analysis. Other new KITE features enable users to build and share scripts and performance results with their colleagues and across teams via email, Facebook and iGoogle and across multiple file formats.
“We’re proud of the fact that developers and Web teams turn to us for insight into how their applications are performing and how end users experience them,” said Chaudhary. “We already offer the largest and most accurate real-time test & measurement infrastructure in the world. Now, we also offer a rich and easy-to-use instant testing tool backed by the power of our global test & measurement network.”
Keynote recently announced it was opening its cloud infrastructure to anyone, offering KITE for free download at http://kite.keynote.com. With the increasing complexity of Web 2.0 applications combined with a lack of interoperability standards, huge amounts of proprietary code and new Internet computing models like Cloud Computing, Web teams are facing new operational nightmares. KITE enables those teams to maximize their resources and keep up with rapid development and deployment cycles, offering real time performance testing and analysis of complex Web 2.0 applications for immediate performance feedback. The solution helps identify the root cause of performance issues instantly, reducing costly mistakes in production.
